Parenting Artist Residency 2024

Building on Satellite, the very successful pilot residency run in collaboration with The Mothership Project, Cow House Studios, with the support of Wexford County Council is pleased to offer an annual two-week residency designed specifically for parenting artists. The Parenting Artist Residency makes it possible for awarded artists to dedicate time to their work by offering all of the support necessary to do so. We recognize many artists discover they must drop or drastically curtail their creative practice while having children, leaving a cultural gap. This residency will support parenting artists at this key stage in their lives, assisting them to have productive and rewarding careers as they rear their families.

Overview

The Parenting Artist Residency is designed specifically for parenting artists with dependants between two and twelve years old; children and partners are welcome. Through an open call, this residency will make it possible for participating artists to develop new work, progress existing projects, or get back to their practice after taking time out to have children. This residency will offer childcare, a stipend of €500, accommodation, and meals.

This residency aims to provide a platform that is notably missing from existing offerings; fostering solidarity among artists who often as a result of having a family end up isolated and alienated from existing art structures.

For any further questions about the Parenting Artist Residency, please contact Frank Abruzzese, Co-Director, Cow House Studios.
